Networking Opportunities

ISSCR International Symposium
20-22 February 2019  |  Amsterdam, Netherlands


One of the best parts of an ISSCR International Symposium is networking with colleagues at all levels in an intimate and accessible way. With poster presentations, multiple receptions, and our popular Job Match making its first-ever appearance at an International Symposium, you'll have numerous opportunities to further your science and career.

Poster Presentations

ISSCR International Symposia feature 100+ posters with the latest stem cell science across a range of topics. Presented in two lunchtime sessions: 

  • Thursday, 21 February, 12:00-14:00
